By His Wounds We Are Healed!

"Surely our griefs He Himself bore,
and our sorrows He carried;
Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was pierced through for our transgressions,
He was crushed for our iniquities;
The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him,
and by His scourging we are healed.
All of us like sheep have gone astray,
Each of us has turned to his own way;
But the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all
To fall on Him." Isaiah 53:4-6

On the recently released "Glory Revealed" CD you will find an awesome song based on the Is. 53 text. The song is entitled "By His Wounds." You can listen online here. [make sure your sound is on, if you have dial-up be patient] It is well worth the 3 minutes.

Take time to reflect on the price that was paid for you. Jesus Christ bore the wrath of God on behalf of wicked sinners. Hallelujah, what a Savior!
